Understanding How Toxic Relationships Happen with Human Design

Hi love,

After dedicating February to love, it’s time we focus on why we get into patterns or personal/business relationships that are traumatic for us. And the good news is, once you’re aware of the areas you’re particularly susceptible to this, you can make sure to be on the lookout for red flags.

Particularly, where we’re undefined or open, that’s where we’re most vulnerable to toxicity, outside influence, and environmental disruptions. Defined areas can still be affected, but they’re less likely to be.

Here’s a list of most susceptible to least susceptible, so that it’s easier for you to pinpoint where outside influences have the most effect:

  • Open Centers – in these centers, we’re completely open and feeling through the entire range of what this center has to offer. It’s more common to absorb external influences through these centers and areas of our lives because we’re – literally – open to it. You know I always say, it’s not good or bad, it's AWARENESS. And having openness actually helps us in so many other ways!

  • Undefined Centers – in these centers, we have some definition (a gate or a few gates). We experience the energy here through these gates we have defined, but they’re “searching” for the other half of the connection. These toxic relationships happen most commonly because we feel like we’ve found our “other half.” This can be good or bad, because with the right people, we feel the fullest connection of love and attraction! But when the relationship isn’t good… it can feel like a whirlwind of emotions and ultimately these are the hardest to leave because we feel like we’re leaving the person who once “completed us.”

  • Unconsciously Defined Centers – in these centers, we have a standard way of being ourselves. We know who we are, what we want, and what this energy feels like… for the most part. Sometimes we question ourselves and we can get persuaded by outside influences in these areas, but it takes a concerted effort from the external to do so. So if you’ve ever been in a relationship that’s manipulative or that takes you “away from yourself,” this is likely the area where you feel that way.

  • Consciously Defined Centers – in these centers, we know exactly who we are, no questions asked. This is the most powerful aspect of who we are, and our friends and family and everyone we meet knows this about us. If you have a consciously defined Ajna, your people KNOW you’re opinionated and have very specific beliefs and perspectives. These centers are the least susceptible to influence because it’s even hard for US to change it ourselves. Again, it’s not good or bad, it’s just an awareness.

This is how our energy interacts with the world around us and it’s just something to be aware of so you can look out for yourself in these types of toxic situations. If you want to see what centers correspond with what areas of life, take a look back at this blog.

This is just the beginning of understanding (and changing) toxic relationships, and continuing through the rest of this month, we’re going to look even further into these influences, how to heal from past relationship traumas, and how to be aware of red flags going forward.
